This park is a lovely oasis on the south side of Paris. We walked through here on our way from the Montparnasse Tower (excellent views of Paris) to the Seine, and it was delightful. Very parisienne, beautifully laid out, nice just to walk around. Very calm.

Great place to visit for a little rest and relaxation. The gardens are a very important green space for the local Parisiens. Nothing very special as such in the gardens, iA good place for a stroll or place to sit and people watch before going back to the crowds at the art galleries and other major attractions.

Caught the Metro here to come up right at the gates!! Lovely manicured gardens with a lovely lake/pond. we sat and enjoyed the surrounds with children floating little boats on the pond that they had hired. Would have liked to had spent some more time there, and would go back there when in Paris next time!

I have never missed paying a visit to this beautiful park - no matter how short or hectic my stay in Paris is. It is beautiful in all the seasons, and it really gives you a glimpse into the daily lives of Parisians of all ages.

One of the must see and free sights of Paris. Even in the winter this is a beautiful open space and remarkably quiet given the location.

Calm atmosphere provide a retreat from city tumult. It has a nice routs to go around and enjoy the pond and the lovely horticulture. There are perhaps hundreds of tasteful and comfortable green metal chairs available. Paris not only encourages walking, but also just sitting. I wish we had more time to properly explore the gardens, take a picnic, and... More

Like most of the places in Paris, it is stylish, elegant, beautiful. You can relax sitting in a comfortable park chair looking in the trees, flowerbeds, fountains, palm trees, the famous palace...

This is a wonderfully restorative place to visit, to escape momentarily from the hurly burly of Paris, and it is adjacent to the Luxembourg Palace. The gardens were laid out in the late 17th century and boast a number of Neo-classical sculptures and statues of heroines, on pedestals and plinths. There are also some huge ornamental urns, and an impressive... More

So this is where the Parisians spend a lazy Sunday afternoon! We had traveled from the Eiffel Tower and needed a place to sit for a bit! And there it was, a park and garden welcoming us with open arms! It was a bit cold, but we realized we weren't alone in feeling the pull of the garden!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
